#1stYoungCitizens’FutureLab, 27 and 28 September 2018, Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen
The Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP) hosts the #1stYoungCitizens’FutureLab at the Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen (EAO) on 27 and 28 September 2018.
The #YoungCitizens’FutureLabs aim at developing innovative ideas for the future of Europe by making use of e‑participation tools in order to empower young citizens to set the agenda for the next European elections and to discuss their demands with decision-makers in public #YoungCitizens’Conventions in Berlin and Brussels.
The #1stYoungCitizens’FutureLab is organised by the IEP and the EAO with the support of the ASKO Europa-Stiftung and the Europe for Citizens programme and will kick off a long-term consultation process all over Europe. During the kick-off event, young citizens are going to discuss e‑participation and digital democracy with Anja Türkan, Digital Strategist, and will develop concrete policy proposals for the upcoming European elections in 2019. In the run up of these elections, further #YoungCitizensFutureLabs will take place in Nice and Warsaw.
